    Love the children's garden, and if you need the little ones to take a nap, it's nice to drive the East/West trails and have them drift off while you enjoy the view.

    The Big Rock isn't that exciting if you've been anywhere else that had rocks moved by glaciers.

    Huge grounds with many different terrains. Enjoy the deep woods or lakes or manicured gardens.

    If you like fall color, head up to the Far East side of the park. Plenty of hills with great views.

    The Children's Garden is in a class of it's own. This entire park is very well designed and maintained. It's worth the drive if you're in the city!

    If you see a hummingbird-like creature, but it has antennae, it is a hummingbird moth. Very neat and they flit very close! Look near fragrance garden.

    Get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and take in all that nature has to offer. (Seriously. They’ve got trees and plants from around the world.)

    the east-side loop is 4.5 miles, with a short-cut drive that can make it just about exactly 5k.. great place to go for a nice run!

    Great place to run in the winter. The main road is plowed so well, you don't need Yak Trax.
